This romantic spot, three blocks from the White House and Metro, is ideal for couples seeking a peaceful retreat. European antiques, Oriental wool rugs, and original oil paintings fill a 1926 art-deco building with old-world charm. Guest rooms feature plush bedding, work desks, and steel-and-chrome bathrooms; some have separate sitting areas with a wet bar and fridge. There's a small fitness room and in-room spa services. Guests have use of the pool at the nearby Washington Plaza.
